Kami the Trout
Everyone who has lived in Kamloops for more than two decades knows Kami, a green, yellow ten-gallon stetson wearing, gun toting trout. He was, in his own fishy way, a Kamloops celebrity, and has made many public appearences at events over the years. Kami quitely swam from the forefront of the public eye in the 1990's, and over time Kamloops became known as the Tournament Capital. The pistol-toting Kamloops trout was disarmed, then retired, to live on in the memories of city residents, however some believe that he is still swimming around in the depths of the Thompson Rivers forever keeping watch over the meeting of the waters.
